Worst arguments i've ever seen.
Koivu has never lead his team to the cup. That's a simple fact. That's a fact, nonetheleast. You can't say that Koivu proved that he could be the go-to guy of a team so far.

And as for Kovalev... what about if the guy just wasn't happy to be kept with Koivu and Higgins?

What about if the guy was just tired of creating golden chances just to see Higgins miss the net on a 3 feet shot?

What I know, is that this year is the first year since a long time that the Canadiens finished 1st in the eastern conference. This is also the first time they finished first there since Koivu is around. Ironically, this is the first year Koivu is not the go-to guy.

Give the offense back to Koivu, and see what happens. We will go back down there.

Where were you when Koivu wasn't doing anything this season?

Kovalev is the offensive leader of this team, he plays great and makes the other around him better. He had tremendous chemestry all year long with Plekanec and Kostitsyn.

All those who suggest to trade Kovalev away don't have a clue what they talk about.
